Two of the leaks in Nord Stream have taken place in the Baltic Sea area belonging to Denmark, and two others in the area belonging to Sweden.

Sweden’s police intelligence unit (SÄPO) has taken over the investigation of the gas leaks and has ruled out the possibility that “a foreign power is behind” the alleged sabotage.

During the day on Tuesday, Denmark, Poland, the United States and Norway expressed suspicions that the pipeline leaks were the result of acts of sabotage. Seismologists in Sweden have gone further and confirmed explosions in the area hours before the leaks were confirmed.
